Gave em a quick clean with the brush and they all sound brilliant

A quick review

1. Elvis Remaster

Good God , Elvis has never sounded like this. Astonishing, clean , no noise, like it was recorded yesterday

2. amy winehouse

UK pressing , better sound than the US pressing i had (and the US pressing was sh*t in terms of scratches at the factory!). Ive heard the Uk and Japan take better care when making their records

3. Mobile Fidelity's Frank Sinatra;

Sinatra usually sounds like he's reading a script in his studio recordings but Live he has more emotion . These recordings are ultra clean , low noise and phenomenal soundstage

4. The Gladiator Soundtrack

2 LPs and leaves the CD version for dead

5. Johnny Cash : The Man Comes Around

Wow , like Cash is in the room . American pressing so one slight imperfection (inaudible though) . The whole room resonates with his voice.

one Gladiator LP had a slight warp and id love to hear what experiences people have had with outer rim stainless steel stabilisers

some lovely stuff there will

this was my little haul recently,

The peggy lee track in casino royale is a real time warp back, and love the willie nelson lp, and for the same reasons I think as the johny cash resonates with you. I must get hold of the cash lp, one have wanted to get for a while. your a sinatra fan too hey ? really sounds great on vinyl that stuff :)

Nice selection. Do you mind giving an indication of the shipping cost from Acoustic Sounds? I've been thinking about making an order. Could just ask them I guess, but...

It's funny, cause I'm after three of what you have in that order!! :)

I'm not so sure about using a brush, I bought one recently but it just seems to push the dust around the record leaving a line of dust.

I've heard good things about them and can see the advantage, though they are pretty expensive. What you could maybe do is figure out the dimensions needed, then get a local metalworker to fabricate you one.

i think it cost me $70 US to have those sent by FED EX express registered post - ill double check ...edit: $72 USD

AL nice selection there , I have that Carol King album on SACD if youd like a loan to compare

Yes those outer rings are expensive but can do wonders : jerome has 2 videos - one with and one without the clamp. Sonically my warp i dont notice but fark the tonearm rides like a rollercoaster !

thanks will, I do actually have the sacd already one of my favs, keen to see how its on vinyl, I think its the kind of stuff that suits the medium. I do actually have an older version picked up at some op shop or sale or something ages ago and that was terrible on vinyl. anyways lets see what this classic records pressing is like :)

turned up in the post today ! both originals out of print,

the first one would only get away with a cover like that in 1977 ! hehe,

a beaut album, the sax playing of gil ventura, accompanied by his orchestra is just some beautifull music. I couldnt believe I found this one. Its a record my parents have but that is very rough playing. this one I got is mint, from emi italy and sounds pristine !

the beth orton disc rarely come up and in good nick. with this one the cover is just ok, the discs are not mint but plays good thank goodness with just a touch of scratchiness ocassionaly. The music just sublime, A two disc set, and enjoyed every track have listened to :)

What did you pay for Central Reservation Al ? Looked into buying in on vinyl not long ago but damn it's expensive.

Being out of print very hard to get them gutty, and yeah why silly prices, the last one I saw going on eBay went for 60 something us dollars for test pressing ! :rolleyes:

Mine I got through discogs 19gbp shipped. Came via uk airmail which was worried about, but was fine got here within the week and unscathed !

Few more there, but yeah a bit on the exy side would want them mint for that kinda money ! :o

Ps there is a guy flogging some 'new' Beth orton trailer park on eBay that grabbed the other week, it was in great nick but a bit underwhlemed by the pressing to be honest :(

Only gave em a quick wipe with the carbon fibre anti static brush as well, so definitely a good result possible just using that for dust and static :)

al, do you have a link to the brush?

thnx matt, big price difference! Might try the cheap one first

Mate you'll find they are exactly the same product ;)

You might find you can get one online in Oz for around $15 if you shop around.
